I had planned on leaving this set in the box, but the carrier had other plans. The box was pulverized, with only tape holding it together. Win some, lose some. Anyway, Barbie's leather outfit looks more off white than like the white in the promo photo, but since she'll be on display she won't get as dirty. You can zip up her jacket, the jacket pockets are real, and it has the Harley logo on the back-- you won't see this if you leave her in the box.
She does look a little like Amy Winehouse with the earrings, hair piled on top and dark eyes and makeup. I don't think she has tattoos; but I'm afraid I wouldn't get the jacket back on if I took it off to look. There's black nail polish, pale lips, all the edges are finished... she's really spectacular. Her legs are bendable, but her arms are not. I don't know what they're thinking when they make these-- probably that no one will take them out of the box anyway. I have the Barbie Harley-Davidson Motorcycle, and if I have to have them out of the box, it would have been nice to have Barbie fully posable for the bike, especially since Ken is.
Ken is fully jointed and looks awesome on the bike! He's got his chain-- no wallet attached, but at this scale it would just add bulk and he probably wouldn't sit right. His tattoo is OK-- nicely done, but nothing to write home about. I *think* he has the same facial sculpt as the Twilight Edward Cullen Ken Doll, but painted facial features and skin tones can play tricks on the eye. I think a lot of people realize that it's difficult to make a good male doll, but they've really pulled it off with this one. He's right up there with Harley Davidson Ken #2, and Ken as Aragorn. My only gripe about him is the velcro on the back of his shirt is bulky. They can do better than that.
Overall, there's nothing here that merits subtracting a star. It's a top-notch set just like the other Harley Barbies and Kens have been, in or out of the box. I wish all collectible Barbies and Kens could be this well-done.
